A special thank you to all our staff members from Iselin, Fords, Henry Inman, and the Woodbridge Main libraries who've helped by donating the main ingredient for our home-made monsters! (thanks for all those paper towel tubes) This year we created 48 monsters, some cute and friendly others not so much!

Have you met a therapeutic pet lately? If you'd like a chance to meet and read to a therapeutic pet just ask at your local library. This program is for children grades 2 and up and is a wonderful way to boost your child's reading confidence. These pets are specially trained and are very friendly. They love coming to the library and enjoy hearing stories. Since they can't read, chances are you'll introduce them to a new story each time you visit.
Another great thing about this program is that all the owners generously volunteer their time when attending these special programs, so you might meet new pets each time you attend!
Look for more pictures on our facebook page!
Put on your red capes and get ready for fun and games at the library! After several games and trivia questions, children enjoyed making their very own Flip-O- Rama books. First, Mrs. Amera taught them how to make a Flip-O-Rama of a boy kicking a ball, then they had fun creating their own. Of course, children have been re-reading captain underpants all month and if you haven't, what are you waiting for?
